Friesland Eleven Cities Tour

8 Days Easy

Friesland, Holland’s most Northern Province, is a region of lush green farms, boat filled waterways and scenic lakes. Friesland is truly special! Imagine skillful, puffing skaters in the wintry landscapes of the Eleven Cities Tour or Elfstedentocht (whose route you’ll follow by bike), a 125 mile long ice skating race looping through 11 towns in Friesland. The Eleven Cities Tour owes its name to two men who decided in the winter of 1808 to skate past eleven towns in one day, a total of 230 kilometers. To prove they had done it, they obtained the signatures of the owners of cafes or hotels in every town. You’ll see on this tour the Frisian sailing ships called “Skutjes”, hamlets, built on earthen mounds to protect them from flooding and beautiful fortified towns all along the way.
